Muddled thinking is currently suggesting that there may be synergies between the Woodstock style Wall Street protests and the Tea Party. Both dislike the vested interests of Wall Street and are concerned about the squeeze on incomes. The key difference lies in personality and positioning. A simple test: who would be the celebrity endorser for each side? The Tea Party has noticeably failed to secure endorsers apart from grumpy cable show hosts and aspiring politicians. Hypothetically pairing both movements gives us insight, for example: Ashton Kutcher and George Clooney teaming up with Bill O’Reilly and Anne Coulter. Enough said.
The PR Verdict: B Minus – An interesting idea but this will only end in tears. Trust us.
